A hairy frogfish Antennarius striatusa relative of the anglerfish family and somewhat similar in appearance to the fanfin angler. The rather ugly and strange-looking fish has managed to evade detection for the most part by science, with many of our observed samples coming from ones that washed up on the beach or were found dead and later preserved. As the footage shows, the much smaller male anglerfish is fused to the underside of the female, providing sperm, and will continue to latch on until it dies and its body wastes away.
This contraption is typically waved over the mouth, attracting other fish who mistake the glowing tip for small prey. With over-sized jaws, hinged teeth and highly elastic stomachs, the devils are prepared to blindly attack anything their bait might bring them, sometimes swallowing prey several times their own size.
